I found a load in one of my old manuals that calls for 17.5 g of Bullseye powder and one oz of shot with a Federal 209 primer. I loaded 5 and they shot nice with low recoil for a 1200 fps load. Just wanted to know if anybody has any experiece with this load in the cold? Starting to get pretty cold here and don't want a bunch of bloopers. JW

Where the heck are you finding Federal 209 primers? They were discontinued many, many years ago. The Federal 209A primer, of course, is a whole different animal, and not an acceptable substitute for the Federal 209.

Got em at an auction. $20 per 2K. Bought everything they had. I'm still trying to work my way thru the 3k Herters 209's that were part of the batch. JW
